How to make a loose Ankara Jacket
Follow the easy steps in this tutorial to learn how to make a loose Ankara Jacket. You can look fashionable without much effort. This is another lovely style you can make easily within minutes. The materials you need for this project is as follows:
Ankara Fabric 2 yards
Plain fabric for facing and color half yard.
Measurements Areas Needed
To cut the front you need your hip measurement plus 4 inches extra for looseness and 1 inch for the facing.
Fold your hip measurement into 4 then cut that by your desired length.
The front block will be divided into two while the back block is not divided.
On the front and back block, cut out the armhole area as well as the neckline.
Note that the neckline in front will be lower than the back. For the front neckline cut like 2.5 to 3 inches down while on the back Neck cut just 1.5 inches.
For the facing, I add just 1 inch. this style needs no shaping at the waist so I cut out straight.
Here is the back block
Here are the front and back blocks after cutting
When you sew the shoulder together and the sides you add your facing to the design then add the collar to the neck and your outfit is ready.
To make the look stylish you could use a fitted pair of trousers, denim pants or leggings just as I did. Make sure to compliment the look with a very lovely pair of shoes so people will appreciate the look.
